Wonton Noodles, a recipe that is as comforting as it is authentic, a one dish meal that is perfect for busy families.
Wonton Noodles are usually served dry with a saucy seasoning, almost aglio olio-like (which is our favorite way of having it) or they can be served in a hot broth. Smooth & thin egg noodles is used and must be cooked just right - al dente style.
It is a simple dish but does require a bit of preparation. You almost need to have a little production line and once you have that going, you'd be able to churn out bowls of Wonton Noodles really quickly and easily.
